“So We’ll Meet at Night, in the Dark. I will open the gate of the wall which surrounds the museum and invite you in. Don’t be scared, I will give you a flashlight so that you will see the way and I won’t leave you for a moment. Only I won’t really be there, you will be all alone.”

“The Opposite of Alive” invites you to a nocturnal, personal experience in the time-frozen landscapes of Jerusalem’s Nature Museum.  Accompanied by a flashlight and the voice of a guide you will examine the boundaries between life and death, between existing and disappearing, between the cheetah and ourselves. To learn something about nature. Their nature, ours, your own.


“It is an incredible moment, of a kind I have never experienced in the world of traditional theatre. These types of experiences are the reason experimental frameworks such as HaZira Performance Arts Arena are important”  Shay Bar Yaacov, Yedioth Ahronot

The Opposite of Alive at the Nature Museum is not only an incredible psychedelic experience, but also a work of sound rarely seen in our parts. You will not regret it”  Raash Hour Radio

The show was premiered at the Jerusalem Season of culture 2012
